RETURNING SHOW: Some shifty criminals used time travel (from 2077 to 2012) to escape an execution on drama “Continuum” (Syfy at 10), and cop Kiera Cameron traveled with them to track them down before they wreak more havoc. In the Season 2 premiere, Kiera teams up with Carlos to investigate the murder of a mayor, while Alec is — understandably — rattled after seeing a message from his future self.

FINALE WATCH: Season 1 wraps up on “Da Vinci’s Demons” (Starz at 9) — don’t worry, it was renewed for a second season after just one episode — as there’s a murderous plot afoot for Easter. Meanwhile, Leonardo tries to save the Medicis, and Lucrezia makes a big confession.

Bridal expert Randy Fenoli heads to Oklahoma City on “Randy to the Rescue” (TLC at 9) when an NBA cheerleader wants the perfect runway gown to fit her carnival-esque reception.

Journalist George Packer and filmmaker Tom Shadyac are interview guests on “Real Time With Bill Maher” (HBO at 10); roundtable includes writer-comedian Dana Gould, political strategist Ana Navarro and correspondent Kevin Williamson.

E! — home of “Sex and the City” reruns — is celebrating the HBO comedy’s 15th anniversary this week, so it’s only fitting that actor David Eigenberg (Miranda’s husband, Steve) stops by to visit the gang on “Fashion Police” (E! at 10).

“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (NBC at 11:35) hosts actor Russell Crowe, cicada expert Mike Raupp and musical guest Judith Hill.
